We go through a lot of razors in our house. Has anyone noticed that razors get dull rather quickly? And at $8 for 4 replacement blades, I cringe every time I need to replace the blades. I suppose my husband could grow a beard and I could go au naturale, but I can’t handle either of those options. I like a close, clean shave on both my husband’s face and my legs. So what’s a girl (or guy) to do?
A friend just tipped me off to a frugal solution. Now, I haven’t tried this yet, so I can’t personally vouch for it, but Sarah is adamant that it works. I believe her exact words were:
This product ROCKS! Buy it!
I promise she’s not affiliated with the product in any way. What’s the product? The Save A Blade. Apparently it sharpens your razor, so you can get more shaves out of your blades.
Sarah said it works well on both her 4 blade razor and her husband’s 5 blade razor. I noticed it had mixed reviews online, but from what I can tell, you have to make sure to get the razor set in the Save a Blade properly. I also read that it works better if you start with a relatively new razor and keep it in good shape, rather than trying to resurrect a really old razor.
At $20 I may see if I can find a sale or a rebate and give it a try. If I can make my razors last twice as long, it would be worth it!
